Samsung to launch smartphones with rollable, slidable displays

Samsung plans to make a slidable display this year

Samsung is crowned as being one of the first smartphone manufacturers to launch foldable smartphones. It could not be determined if these innovations will come with Samsung's Z Flip 3 and Galaxy Fold 3.

South Korean tech giant Samsung is no rookie when it comes to unconventional phone designs. Furthermore, Samsung will also try to launch small-to-mid-display foldable smartphones this year - all of this including the launch of affordable foldable smartphones. It's possible that Samsung Display is making a slidable display only so it can compete with Chinese panel vendors like BOE and CSOT for business.

Samsung Display is the company behind the screen technologies used in the brand's foldable phones including both the Galaxy Fold phones and the Galaxy Z Flip. In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A72 may come with a 6.7-inch display and is also rumoured to come with the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Choi Kwon-young, vice president of Samsung's display unit, briefed on the new screens after the announcement of the company's latest financial report.

Samsung Display confirmed that it is working on rollable and slidable screens, hinting that it aims to give LG some competition, The Elec reported. The smartphone's pricing details were also leaked in a recent report, hinting at an Euro 499 (roughly Rs 40,000) price tag for the base 6GB RAM + 128GB storage model and Euro 509 (roughly Rs 45,000) for the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant.

On a similar note, LG too had showcased its first rollable phone at CES earlier this month, but recent rumours suggest that the device won't get launched any time soon as LG plans on selling the smartphone business to someone else altogether. As the display itself is still under production, there is no word available as to what kind of features to expect from the upcoming smartphones. The LG Rollable, on the other hand, could launch later this year. Unfortunately the technologies that might grace the Z Flip3 and Galaxy Fold3 were not named.
